Being Prepared

Being prepared is key to ensuring you are ready when disaster strikes.

The importance of preparing ourselves for disasters is universal. Emergencies can happen anywhere - at home or at work - and everyone must take action to prepare for emergencies in case something unexpected happens.

Being prepared is a 365-day-a-year activity. Take charge and take control to be as prepared as possible.
